Nighty Night Lavender Smoothie

Do tired eyes have you fighting for your life by 3 p.m.? If you’re like 25%+ of Canadians, you’re not alone. Struggling with sleep is incredibly common and sleep issues are on the rise. It’s estimated that 1 in 3 of us aren’t getting enough sleep, with almost 50% of Canadians waking up groggy on the daily. 1

Fortunately, there are ways you can support your sleep, like this delicious smoothie. Here’s how it helps:

  • Research shows that eating carbs 4 hours before sleep can help with falling asleep sooner. Carbs, found in bananas, can also increase sleep-good neurotransmitters like serotonin and tryptophan.2
  • Lavender, especially its scent, has a calming effect that can support sleep.
  • Blueberries help boost sleep by offering magnesium, a mineral that helps the body relax, decrease stress, and aids in longer, more fulfilling slumber.3


  • ½ a frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp dried culinary lavender
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil (room temp)
  • 1 cup preferred milk
  • 1 tbsp honey


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender and pour into a glass.
  2. Enjoy!
